ST-Ericsson introduced the Snowball developer board to drive the software innovation for Android, Linux and Linaro based embedded devices on the ST-Ericsson Nova™ A9500 platform.. ST-Ericsson's Nova application processor family is taking the mobile computing experience to the next level by offering a combination of high performance mobile processing, advanced graphics cores and powerful multimedia at extreme power efficiency. Snowball combines ST-Ericsson's Nova A9500 featuring dual-core Cortex-A9 at 1 Ghz and Mali-400 GPU with GPS and advanced connectivity plus a complete set of STMicroelectronics sensors - 3D gyroscope, accelerometer, magnetometer, barometer - in a small form factor battery-operated device.
Designed by Calao, with the low-level software developed by Linaro, Snowball was conceived to put sophisticated mobile technologies within reach of a broad community of professional developers, so that they can create and perfect their apps for a wide range of devices before they are launched.
Snowball is providing up-to-date Linux and Android SW versions, as the Android 4.x Ice Cream Sandwich, available as open source code through the Igloo community. This allows developers to optimize their apps at every level of the software stack ensuring best possible performance and user experience. Learn more
